Plot – Spoilers:
Based on the Spanish film, Sleep Tight.

A Korean bank employee is terrorized by someone trying to repeatedly break into her home. Unlike in Sleep Tight, the lead character here is more mild-mannered and socially unfriendly, which takes away from the evil of the person out to fuck up her life. The stalker’s motives too, are different here.

Door Lock takes some basic elements from Sleep Tight and turns that into a sometimes-implausible home-invasion mystery thriller.

Recommended to be watched after the Spanish original.

Sleep Tight is good. This one might be worth a watch too.

Yeap.. good intense drama what you would expect from Korean cinema.
Nowhere as good as the Spanish sleep tight but a dam good watch .
Not least to learn what vegetable porridge is . I never knew.. embarrassed to say . .

Creepy and just about the right pace.
A nice way to spend an evening..

As ever many thanks Effedup
